Slowly, very slowly, I’m appreciating the taste for ginger beer more than I thought I would. Although I love using fresh ginger in stir frys, homemade pho, or when making butter chicken…I wasn’t a huge fan of this fizzy/spicy pop-like soda at first. But now????? Obsessed.
It goes perfectly with notes of crisp apple and tart cranberry (an iconic autumn duo that is no surprise), so alas! A very delicious twist on a Moscow Mule :’)
- 2.5 oz of chilled vodka
- Juice of half a lime
- 1 oz of apple cider and cranberry juice
- Ginger beer to top off
- Frozen cranberries + apple slices
In a tall glass, pour chilled vodka over ice. Next add the lime, apple and cranberry juice and mix together. Top with as much ginger beer as your heart desires and garnish with a few honeycrisp apple slices and frozen whole cranberries.
